Nissan has decided on the date of the premiere of the new sports car Nissan Z. The company officially announced this just a few months after the show of the concept Z Proto. 2020.
And you shouldn’t rejoice ahead of time: a few more months will pass before the production version appears, and only then will we finally be able to see a new two-turbine coupe in metal. But the automaker did not expand on the price of the new sports car and its performance.
The new Z is known to borrow the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine from the Infiniti Q60, with an expected output of around 400 horsepower. A manual transmission with an optional automatic transmission will be included as standard, and power will be transmitted exclusively to the rear wheels.
The design of the new Nissan Z is likely to be a version of what we’ve already seen on the Z Proto: an impressive fastback shape, a huge grille and retro-styled taillights. Patent applications and spy photos of what we consider to be the final production cut paint a pretty clear picture.
The interior of the new Z shouldn’t be very different from the Proto. The same crisp 8.0-inch touchscreen will likely carry on, as will the triple-sensor front-mounted design, digital instrument cluster and three-spoke steering wheel with optional leather seats.
According to insider information, the new sports car will cost at least $ 34,995. With the performance package, that amount could rise by another $ 5,000. It will include Brembo brakes, thicker anti-roll bars, more powerful cooling and more. We’ll find out more at the end of summer.
